I am SO happy. My last appt. was the worst and I was just hoping and praying that today would be better. Dr. said baby was a little lower, I am 50% effaced and super soft (I think that is due to the EPO I've been taking), and I'm dilated to 1cm. He scheduled me for induction on Saturday which I've been hoping for but didn't think he was going to do it. I'm super excited that things are working out and i'll have that extra week to recover before I have to attend a 2 week lab class for school. I'm really happy today He also stripped my membranes again (not sure he really did it last time since I was only a fingertip dilated). I've been having some spotting since and I'm kinda hoping I don't make it to Saturday. Yippee.... end of the road in sight. Do you know what I'll miss about being pg.? Not having to suck in my gut!
